Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - According to the police, several thousand people demonstrated in Frankfurt on Wednesday evening for solidarity with Ukraine. After a smaller demonstration under the motto "Peace, freedom, democracy and independence for a free Ukraine in a free Europe" on Paulsplatz, to which several parties had called, another rally took place a little later on Willy-Brandt-Platz. The police spoke of around 5000 participants. Similar campaigns were also planned in other Hessian cities, and there was to be a benefit concert in Kassel.
Exactly six months ago, Russia launched an invasion to conquer Ukraine. At the same time, Wednesday is Ukrainian Independence Day.
